New Writing Stuff

Paul Hord, a long time friend and an amusing fellow, is back with us after months and months of absence.  We have his children, who accidentally discovered that he was a writer, to thank for his return.  Thanks, Google.  Most men will be able to relate to his personal failures confessed in “Epic Fails.”
Say “Hi” to Paul a phord@csisd.org.



Corky Cummings is back with us this month with “Minor Complaints”

in which Corky admits that his life is pretty good, but he still has some minor complaints: loud folks, unnecessary delays in check out lines, and tailgaters.  They seem to get on his last nerve.
Say “Hi” to Corky in California at ccummings7@cox.net.

Wayne Edwards has five new humorous  poems this month all about Halloween and other scary stuff: “Halloween Story” tells of  a meeting with a friendly skeleton; “Halloween” poses the question “What do Goblins eat”;
“Scary Place” reminds us that little fellows are some times afraid more than we realize;
“Journey,” relates a bad dream a youngster has when Mom and Dad are away; and  “Bear Scare” relates a man’s encounter with a bear in the woods and the resulting redicule of his “friends.”
See Wayne’s books in the Bookstore  and visit Wayne’s website at familypoet.com and say “Howdy” to him at  wayne@familypoet.com.
  
David Carlton is busy preparing a new book of his poetry for publication, so I’ve included an older poem by David.  It’s fairly long but worth your  time.
The Biscuits Are Fluffy

                The biscuits are fluffy
                Though baked in a pot
                The meats cooked real tender
                The beans spicy hot

                You roll in your bedroll
                And pull off you boots
                Off in the distance
                You hear an owl hoot

                The whippoorwill is calling
                His voice sweet and clear
                You wish for your lady
                To hold and be near

                Another day’s over
                You’re tired to the bone
                The stars and the heaven
                Are the roof of your home

                It’s a hard life for sure
                And though you’ll die young
                You’d rather die happy
                In the hot Southern sun…. 
See David’s poetry at The Poetry of David Carlton.

Bill Neinast, columnist for the Brenham Banner Press, 
has four new essays for us this month:  
in “OK, We Lost” Bill ask the reader to put himself or herself in the position of a judge when contemplating Judge Kavanaugh’s position as he reponds to inqueries from the Senate confirmation hearing; 
in “Do Democrats Have No Shame?” Bill chastises the  Democrats for their treatment of Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford; “Bring Back the WPA” is Bill’s solution for poverty, inequality, and financial instability; and in “Senators and Sense,” Bill contends that many Democrat senators don’t seem to have the mental capacity to hold their positions.
Tell Bill you appreciate him and his writing at 
neins1@aol.com.

I have four new essays this month:
“What Art Education?” questions society’s efforts in  art education; “Hell, I’m an Entrepreneur” is a daydream and nightmare about entrepreneurship (I think I just made up a word.); “Happy Pessimist”  is the self-examination of my own personality; and 
“Place”  which should make a lot of places displeased.
My book, Old Guy Has Final Word, is still available  at Amazon I’ve added a Kindle version.   My book has been picked up by Barnes and Noble.    The book is a collection of essays suitable to be read by  both young and old.  
Tell me how much you hate my writing at oldjwpinkerton@gmail.com and take a look at my bio page: John Pinkerton.
